Meet the Sunrise of Grosse Pointe Woods Team

Grosse Pointe Woods Team Member Kim Kim Deegan

Director of Sales

“I’ve been in this industry since 2005, selling all aspects of senior living. I’m passionate about what I do—not only because it’s challenging, but also because it’s rewarding in so many ways. I get the opportunity to help families find solutions for their loved ones, and I feel fortunate that I get to be a part of their journey.

Although I’ve only been at Sunrise for a short while, I feel truly blessed to be part of such an amazing company and team. It’s refreshing to see a team that lives and breathes our mission and culture in the way we serve our seniors. I’m so excited to be a part of the Sunrise team and to be able to help make a difference in the lives we serve.

When I’m not at Sunrise, I like to spend time with my boyfriend, friends and family, and my two cats. I also like to work out and be outside in the sunshine and nature.”

Judy Gafa, RN - Team Member Since 2010

Resident Care Coordinator

“I started my nursing career more than 25 years ago at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak.  I have been at Sunrise since 2010. What I love most about my job is working with the residents; I have a passion for caring for older adults and Sunrise provides a nurturing environment that allows me to serve our residents to provide that care.

When I’m not at Sunrise, I like to spend time with my three children.”

Sunrise on Vernier Team Member VeraVera Gjolaj— Team Member Since 2013

Resident Care Coordinator

“I joined the Sunrise team in 2014. I worked as a wellness nurse for my first two years, prior to becoming Reminiscence coordinator.

My favorite part about working here is caring for the residents; working for a company that puts residents’ needs first is by far the best part about Sunrise. Helping provide a voice for those living with dementia gives me a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Every day I come into work, I know that I get to make someone’s day better and make a difference.

In my free time, when I am not running my two girls to soccer games and practices, I enjoy reading a good book.”
